Thunder aggressively trying to trade up in 2022 NBA draft for Shaedon Sharpe, Jaden Ivey, per ESPN

In his latest mock draft, ESPN draft expert Jonathan Givony reported that the Oklahoma City Thunder are aggressively trying to move up from 12th place in the 2022 NBA draft in hopes of nabbing someone like Shaedon Sharpe or Jaden Ivey.

“The Thunder are said to be aggressively engaging in trade talks for this election, looking to package it with future assets or existing OKC players to enter the mid lottery, with players like Jaden Ivey and Shaedon Sharpe seen as potential prospects to covet .”

In the same article, Givony lets the Sacramento Kings put Ivey fourth overall, but adds that the Kings aren’t Ivey’s preferred target. Givony then listed several teams interested in moving up to No. 4, with The Thunder being one of them.

Rival teams believe a trade package centered on Lu Dort could potentially lure the Kings into accepting a deal as they look to battle for the playoffs next season.
